I wish I could have been around to enjoy downtown at Christmas when Main Street was still Main Street and merchants went all out to celebrate the holidays as shown in this 1968 Oklahoman photo.
Of course, it’s not that bad now either. The lighting of the tree in Bricktown in 1996 was a particularly fun event, complete with fireworks. I wasn’t there this time around (got sick) so I don’t know if we had fireworks this time around or not.
Anyway, Santa is on his way, the kids are asleep, and some cookies are out on the kitchen table. Good night everybody, and have a wonderful Christmas!
